The Buffalo Sabres appear to be moving quickly in their coaching search.
After his tenure with the Sharks, McLellan signed up to coach Connor McDavid in Edmonton. In parts of four seasons, he made the playoffs just once in 2017, but lost in Game 7 of the second round to the Anaheim Ducks. McLellan was fired just 20 games after a 9-10-1 start to the 2018-19 season.
The Sabres aren't the only ones reportedly interested in Todd McLellan.
TSN hockey insider Bob McKenzie and others are reporting that the Los Angeles Kings remain in the mix for the veteran head coach.
